Aww that pretty girl! I love her jacket, especially that it’s large enough to fit a big gal like her. Who is the manufacturer? 

Thanks for letting us know how she’s doing. Glad she at least ate something! You’re right, do whatever it takes to keep her eating. Keep that fridge stocked with the stinkiest meats, cheeses and whatever else you think she’ll eat and you’ll be set.

Just wanted to throw this out there, but that Gabapentin dose seems pretty low for a dog her size. Wyatt Ray is on 400mg 3x a day for ongoing pain control and he is only 81 lbs. You may want to ask your vet if it’s OK to increase and that may help ease the rapid breathing / panting signals. Gabapentin is usually OK to bump up but be sure ask.

I hope you guys have a lovely weekend. Is Fall coming soon to the northeast? Geez it’s too early!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Thank you for the suggestion on the gabapentin! Our vet did say that we could up her dose, but she didnt say why. Now that i know ill definitely ask them! 

 i got her coat off amazon its a zack and zoey nor’easter. It was one of the few ive found that could accommodate her deep chest and skinny waist. They have a very resonable price and lots of colors. Definitely a must have here. Fall is coming fast. Were actually stacking fire wood today! I might even start the stove for roane tomorrow if the temp dips😉

         Hugs ❤ Bev, nurse Moe cat, Autumn's Angel Roane & Angel dog Gypsy 🐾

My sweet soulmate Roane was diagnosed with osteo in June of 2019. Had a rear leg amp on July 2nd & crossed the rainbow bridge to be with her sister Gypsy on the first day of Autumn Sept 23 2019.

a bit of an inside joke at our house. Roane doesn’t like to be cold! she will share her spot if you ask nicely and don’t mind 130 pound dog in your lap!

Yep, that’s Roane’s woodstove alrigjt!  She clearly is “one” with it!  

I keep scrolling back up to look at those photos.  She knows how to warm herself head to butt.  And she is such a pretty girl!

My Frankie and Merry Myrtle (and Happy Hannah in the past) will sleep by the woodstove and get so warm they’ll pant, but they won’t  give it up!

Thanks fot rhe smiles Roane😊

Hugs

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!
